संस्कृतम्

जीवनस्य लक्ष्यमेव संस्कृतस्य वर्धनम्

तव गुणानां ईश पारं न याति

असितगिरिसमं स्यात्‌ कज्जलं सिन्धु पात्रं
सुरतरुवरशाखा लेखनी पत्रमुर्वी।
लिखति यदि गृहीत्वा शारदा सर्वकालं
तदापि तव गुणानां ईश पारं न याति॥
asitagirisamaṁ syāt kajjalaṁ sindhu pātraṁ
surataruvaraśākhā lekhanī patramurvī |
likhati yadi gṛhītvā śāradā sarvakālaṁ
tadāpi tava guṇānāṁ īśa pāraṁ na yāti ||

"The ink may be like a black mountain, the sea – inkpot;
a branch of the tree of gods [as] pen, and the whole earth [as] paper.
If Goddess Sarasvati (Sharada) writes for all the time using all this material
Even then, O Lord, she will not complete describing your attributes."

(adapted from Kedar)
